Description

Corsair has released a highly recommended firmware update for some SSD:

"To enhance stability and reliability of 60GB and 120GB variants of Force Series LS SSD, the latest firmware S9FM02.0 has been released. This update is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for existing customers who own one of those products with the specific serial number sequence."

"WARNING!!! This firmware upgrade will format the drive and all of its contents will be erased. Please back-up your data by either performing full disk clone of the drive or making copies of critical personal files."

http://downloads.corsair.com/download?item=Files/SSD/Corsair-Force-Series-LS-Firmware-Upgrade-Tool_S9FM02.0.zip (instruction and details in the PDF file inside)

The impacted SSD are Corsair Force LS 60 and 120 GB (CSSD-F60GBLS, CSSD-F120GBLS) with firmware version "S9FM01.8" with some specific serial number:
xxxxxxxxxxx10167xxxx
xxxxxxxxxxx10173xxxx
xxxxxxxxxxx10249xxxx
xxxxxxxxxxx10253xxxx

The updated firmware is version "S9FM02.0".

[RFE] It would be interesting that smartmontools detects these SSD and warns the user about it.

I attach a "smartctl -x" log of a SSD with 1.8 firmware and then with the 2.0 upgrade applied.
Note that the SMART data ("Power_Cycle_Count" for example) are reset to 0 after the firmware update.
